    August 30, 2019 - Big and bold. Excellent wine from Shafer. Only will get better with time. Tannins still very much in place in this very structured wine. Truly enjoyable experience.

    August 7, 2019 - Pnp, drank over 1 hour. Perfectly aged wine & steaks. Dark, amazing, smooth, delicious fruits, a touch of dark chocolate & tobacco. Great CA Cab.

    July 5, 2019 - Powerful wine. Full of currants, black cherries, blackberries. Still really young with a fresh finish.

    June 1, 2019 - This was perfection tonight. Fully integrated, perfectly balanced, fruit was still very lively. BlackBerry, Cherry, spice box. Wow!

    March 9, 2019 - Honored the passing of John Shafer with a great bottle of Hillside at North Pond, Chicago

    It’s a powerful Napa Cab in a very good way. It’s drinking beautifully now or can sit for many years. I’d probably prefer it in another 3+ years but there’s nothing “wrong” with it today.
